Further studies on seroreactivity in leprosy by means of a lecithin-free cardiolipin antigen (cardchol) and other antigens ordinarily used in the serodiagnosis of treponematoses*

By Henning Schmidt


In a previous study the reactivities of some lipoidal antigens in sera from patients with different types of leprosy were investigated. The present paper is a continuation of this earlier study and relates to an investigation of some 300 sera from leprosy patients in India. In particular, the reactivity of cardchol (a complement-fixing, lecithin-free, cardiolipin antigen) is compared with that of CWRM (an ”ordinary” cardiolipin antigen used in routine complement-fixation tests for the serodiagnosis of treponematoses)
